3 College Student

Overall Experience: Made the Right Choice – I like my school. I don't have that typical college `pride' in it like other people have, but AWC is giving me a mostly online education, which is all that matters. I haven't really attended many events or school functions, but that's not why I'm here. As long as that degree is on the horizon, I'm happy with my school experience.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: Do Not Wait – The education I'm getting is well worth the money I'm paying.I received financial aid, which helps, but I'm fine with the expense because I know my degree will make a difference in my career.

3 College Student

Student Body: The professors are great and patient. They're willing to go over information if you don't understand. They answer questions in great detail and is easily understandable. I'm a single mother going back to school while working full time job. I'm not here to socialize but to get my degree to make a better life for myself and my child.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professors Are Very Understanding – Every professor I have had at AWC has been very friendly and compassionate. They are more than willing to work with you to help you succeed.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Love the Community – Everyone is so friendly and caring, love this campus.

Campus Resources: English Class – I have always been bad at English and hated it for that reason, that is until I came to AWC. My English 101 and 102 professors were amazing!

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Would of given an A, however the financial aid is terrible. They are never there, they have no answers. No one knows left from right. They need experienced people. Our kids are the future, how can they have a future without help!

Campus Resources: SINGLE PARENT PROGRAM – They help with travel expensed for single parents. Great people!

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Campus Computer Labs – The Campus computer labs are excellent and provide people with a safe, quiet fast way to get there work done. No one likes a slow computer and these computers are everything but slow. The printing process is good I have never had a problem with any of the computer processes since i've been in this school.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Post-Grad Services – The career center is very helpful, they specialize in help with resume's and any hard questions that you may have about you future in a certain career choice.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Arizona Western offers a good finacial aid program although they are a little confusing at first, mainly if you have never had any dealing with any prior financial aid offices.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Computer Lab – I can always go to the computer lab confident that I will be able to sit at a computer right away.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Education should be enjoyable and involved. Most of the professors here do make classes enjoyable.

Campus Resources: B;Eh :/ – The conselurs suck but its a cheap school easy to navigate its hot but the surrounding is nice close to lotsa places to go and its easy cause everybody there is stupid lol

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Specific Major – Having a specific major will help you set a time goal on when you will finish your education. Without this you could get into some dangers of exceeding the credit hours that most college's allow.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: The K.E.Y.S Program – Without this program a lot of students would not make it in college, as they help you stay focused on your goal.
They help guide you to your future in higher education, whether it is just for an associates or on to transfer to a university.
They help the first generation, low-income, and disability students to achieve their ultimate goals of education.
Keep up the great work in helping students find their way.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My Academic Experience – My academic experience this far has been a very rewarding one, as I have discovered that the instuctors here care about each and every student. They believe in the ability of each student to succeed. They help you do that in pointing you to the directions to go whether it is meeting with them personnally, or using the tutoring center that is on campus. The instuctors follow your progress very carefully, so you do not get let behind.

I would come to this college again as it has made a big impact on my higher education. As this institution has helped me get past my fears of giving up, and I stuck with it, and now I am so close to graduating that I can not believe that I did it.

Thank you Arizona Western College for believing in me when I did not.

Campus Resources: AWC CAMPUS – Everything here is great very quite pretty much a good jr college. There are many clubs to join and there are many students that its east to meet new friends. Their is a Starbucks which is great and the food is great unlike no other.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Friendly and Helpful, Sometimes Incompetent – I enjoy AWC. It has a friendly we're-all-a-family appeal to it and most of the students and faculty are kind to each other. In general, AWC has high education standards. The "campus spirit" is also alive and well. However, my only complaint is that one or two of the employees, as with any college, don't seem to really know their stuff. As far the professors themselves are concerned, they're knowledgable and usually amiable. In fact, in the entirety of my time at AWC, I only met one professor whom I felt was unfit to be teaching. I actually feel blessed that I've had such a memorable time here. I will look back with fondness.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Ask for All the Help You Need – I believe Arizona Western College tuition and financial aid is fair. Classes and education provided is really helpful. I've learn to ask any questions I have because you never know what a difference it makes. Try and finish everything before time and review all you do.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I Appreciate Our Technology Services – My school has many computers you can utilize anytime you want. It is so easy to get a computer and print out your homework in under 5 minutes. Teachers are constantly updating BlackBoard. A few weeks ago, our BlackBoard went down because of some technical errors but our technogical team took action immediately. They worked all night long non-stop trying to fix it and the next morning, BlackBoard was back up and running. It was wonderful!

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've Never Loved School as Much as I Do Now – I absolutely LOVE my school! I came in not knowing a thing about college but my school's website is self-explainatory. Tuitions, fees, financial aid, scholarships....everything is stated within the website. I believe I receieved more than I bargained for because my teachers have made my education simple and fun. They are all very professional and they are always willing to lend you a hand on everything.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Diversity at AWC – Much of our student body consist of hispanics just because of location especially being close to the border. Yet there are several african americans and alot of white people as well. Much diversity comes from peoples style and race and cultural background at AWC.

There are many things that make AWC an outstanding college. The small size of the classes allows the instructor to pay attention to everyone, knowing each student by his or her name. The flexibility of class schedules allows students to adjust their extracurricular activities with their school time tables. The affordable tuition allows students to save money while preparing to transfer to a four-year university. Plus, the faculty members are always ready to serve the students. Students are assigned an adviser to help them make important decisions on their academic journey. You can get connected with your laptop to the campus Wi-Fi from the dorms, the cafeteria, Starbucks, or the library. Staying in the college dorms keeps you close to everything. The library offers study rooms of different sizes that you can book for your academic needs. The Student Success Center offers free tutoring in different subjects, as well.

Attending AWC gives you the chance to embrace a new community. Through the diverse nationalities of the international students attending the college, AWC opens the door to a global community and provides the opportunity to discover different cultures. You can join one or more of the many student clubs, such as the Science Club, the Radiologic Technology Club, the Rotaract Club, and the I Team (international team), just to name a few. Besides these individual clubs and organizations, faculty-supervised programs (such as the Matador Ambassador program, the Honors program, Phi Theta Kappa, and the Student Government Association) provide leadership and connection opportunities and also a chance to get scholarships.
